brad pitt, make it rightIn their annual listing of the top best sustainable buildings, the American Institute of Architects has chosen a home built for Brad Pitt’s Make It Right organization.

The AIA picks 10 buildings that show how design can reduce environmental impacts by reusing materials, connecting to public transit, conserving water and energy and improving indoor air quality. The Make It Right home, one of many built over the last couple years, is called “Special No. 9 House” and was designed by John C. Williams Architects. It’s goal is to provide storm-resistant, affordable, and sustainable housing options for the residents of New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

The AIA loved it not only for its green features and Plantium LEED certification — but also because it can be readily mass-produced.

Check out an overview of the winning home here.
